So Here I Am – Anna Russell

Rosie with “So Here I Am” by Anna Russell

This is a great book about some of the great female speeches that have been given. They’re often not included in books about speeches, and this book included some women I had not heard of.

Butterfly – Yusra Mardini

A fascinating look at a swimmer from Syria and her escape to Germany.

WATCHED

Castle

7×10 Bad Santa

David Suchet in the Footsteps of St Peter

Episode 1

Episode 2

Jurassic Park

I LOVE these movies. I also love how every time Jeff Goldblum stars in anything, he’s playing Jeff Goldblum.

The Lost World

Loved Jeff Goldblum in this. This was the only sequel I really enjoyed.

The Thin Man

These movies are classics for all the right reasons. Love Myrna Loy and William Powell together.

After the Thin Man

This is my favourite Thin Man movie. It is absolutely hilarious and you can completely tell that William Powell and Myrna Loy would often ad lib things in the movie.

Inspector Rex

2×08 Death of a Child: Love Rex with the logs of wood at home and then saving the little boy

NCIS LA

11×09 Kill Beale Volume 1: Eric was a complete star in this and I loved the bit at the end with him dancing. So mad about this Nell/Hetty rift. They are literally my favourite relationship on the show.

11×10 Mother: So, so good. Did not care for Nell’s nasty snark at Hetty. LOVED Deeks riding the door out of the building.

Arrow

6×01 Fallout: Oh hello evil Laurel. You are so much more fun when you’re evil. And Thea’s in a coma. Because of course she is.
